The epicanthic fold is a projection of skin between the upper and lower eyelids alongside the nose. It is a common racial characteristic among people with east Asian ancestry. This fold is present in fetuses and infants of any race, and its continued presence can be a sign of a developmental disorder, although this is not always the case. The epicanthic fold is one of several distinguishing characteristics for persons of Asian descent, particularly those whose ancestors originated in the region from Tibet to Japan. It is also found in Pacific Islanders and Native Americans, who are believed to be descended from Asians, and is not unknown among people of European and African descent. Some scientists speculate that the epicanthic fold may have been an aid to vision for the people residing in or near the Mongolian desert, providing protection from either glare or airborne sand particles.

Ask the Chinese guy: Asian Eyes
Mongolian or epicanthal folds are skin folds of the upper eyelids that cover the inner corner of the eyes, resulting in the characteristic Asian appearance. If this fold is very pronounced, it may be corrected by surgery to remove or minimise it, making the eyes look bigger, less widely spaced and more alert. Many opt for this procedure to appear more Western. Mongolian folds may be corrected by a procedure called medial epicanthal surgery, which involves making fine incisions in the region of the epicanthal fold in order to form a network of skin flaps. Extra skin may be removed.

I have double eyelids and I don't see whats so great about them. I think monolids look really cute I don't think it's based on nationality. It's probably just genetics.
When we talk about Asian eyes, we talk about slantedness, roundness, smooth monolids and deep eyelid folds. To talk about Asian eyes is to have a unique lexicon. And these stereotypes persist today. Asian-Americans who spoke to HuffPost expressed everything from dissatisfaction to ultimate acceptance of their eyes and appearance. Their feelings about Asian eyes were fraught with centuries-old, cross-continental beliefs about attractiveness.
